Red, White and Green Cupcakes
HEAT oven to 350°F. Line muffin cups with paper baking cups. Prepare cake mix according to package directions using water, oil and eggs. Divide evenly into prepared muffin cups.
BAKE 19 to 23 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool completely.
FIT three decorating bags with large round or star tips. Fill one bag half full with red frosting, one bag half full with white frosting and one bag half full with green frosting. Pipe frosting in circles starting at outside edge of cupcake, alternating colors to create stripes and overlapping slightly to create height. Top with dot of red or green frosting. Sprinkle immediately with candy bits from frosting, if desired.
